Hi! I was just wondering how many third grade teachers call their students to the carpet for read alouds/whole group instruction etc. This is my second year teaching third grade, and I am toying with the idea of getting a rug and using it for read alouds. I don't think any of the other third grade teachers at my school have a carpet area in their classroom. Would this be too babyish? Love to hear your opinions/experiences. Thanks!!
